Posted:

In what has been a successful first competition season for the new look Husqvarna racing program in Australia, Husqvarna welcomes two new riders into the factory motocross team for a two-pronged assault on the Australian Supercross championships.

Less than a month after Egan Mastin wrapped up the factory team's first Australian motocross championship in the MXD category, exciting 22-year-old South Australian Josh Cachia and experienced Wollongong pro Ryan ‰ÛÏDoggy‰Û

Marmont like Cachia raced with another outfit to start the 2014 season and is looking forward to be working alongside some of the greats of Australian racing in Anderson and Leisk.

‰ÛÏI'm excited to race the Supercross championship on this bike, and around the people that are involved in it." Marmont said. "Ando I‰Ûªve had full respect for my whole career, so I'm grateful to be riding for him and with the backing of Jeff Leisk and Husqvarna.

"I really feel we can give this Supercross championship a bit of a shake up, and get some results on the board.

"It is kinda‰Ûª last minute, but I have had a week on the bike and I feel quite at home on it straight away - it's great fun bike to ride. I‰Ûªm basically going through some setups now and looking forward to round one.

"I want to be at the front, and I know what it takes to be there, so now I'm just trying to pull all those little pieces together and make it all happen."

Team manager Craig Anderson is excited to head into the Supercross season with two riders who have the calibre to win.

"These guys have won a lot of races and championships, and am very excited to have two guys of that calibre ride for me. I've spoken to them pretty much every day, and they've been very upfront, communication has been awesome and they‰Ûªre pretty much pumped with the bikes already.

"Josh will ride the FC 350 in the open class, and Doggy is riding an FC 250 in the Lites class. I think with Josh stepping up to the open class, and he being a little guy who rides a 250F quite well, going straight to a full 450 may have been a big jump, so we are thinking the 350 may suit his weight and riding style better.

"The 250F is as good as anything out there. We gave Doggy an option to ride either, and he picked to ride the four stroke. I think he can ride it faster and longer.

"We always go to win, but if we get both boys in the top five that will be great." Anderons concluded.

The opening, double-header rounds of this year‰Ûªs Australian Supercross championship take place in conjunction with the annual Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama on August 11 and 12.
